Caps season with four more catches

Woods reeled in four of five passes for 40 yards during Saturday's 20-16 loss to Jacksonville.

Analysis: Woods tied Austin Hooper and Treylon Burks for the team lead in catches and otherwise finished second in receiving yards and targets among Titans. The yardage total also marked Woods' most since Week 14 (also against the Jaguars) and was his fourth most of the campaign, leaving him with a season-long line of 53-527-2 on 91 targets in 16 games. It was a fair performance for a player that tore his ACL on Nov. 13, 2021, and the 30-year-old now can focus on putting the serious injury further in the rearview mirror this offseason. With three more years left on his contract, Woods is slated to be on Tennessee's roster in 2023 as the situation currently stands.

Team-high catch total Thursday

Woods brought in five of nine targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' 27-13 loss to the Cowboys on Thursday night.

Analysis: Woods' catch and target totals were both team highs, and he was on the receiving end of Joshua Dobbs' one touchdown pass late in the third quarter. The veteran wideout has multiple catches in four consecutive games, and his experience could certainly afford him an important role again in a key Week 18 road matchup versus the Jaguars a week from Sunday that will decide the AFC South champion.

Four catches in loss

Woods recorded four catches on four targets for 30 yards in Saturday's 19-14 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: Woods led the Titans in receptions and receiving yards, an indication of how little the offense was able to move the ball. While he managed to record at least four receptions for the third time in his last six games, Woods didn't manage much yardage as he was targeted entirely in the short areas of the field. That's unlikely to change with Malik Willis under center for the rest of the regular season.

Only 12 yards against Chargers

Woods recorded two catches on four targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Chargers.

Analysis: Woods finished second among Tennessee's wide receivers in snaps -- he had one fewer than Nick Westbrook-Ikhine -- but that didn't lead to much production. His most notable opportunity came when he was targeted inside the five early in the second quarter, though Derrick Henry ultimately punched in the score one play later. Woods now has 30 or fewer receiving yards in nine games on the campaign.

Puts in full workout

Woods (illness) was listed as full participant at Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Woods' ability to take every rep at the Titans' second practice of Week 15 clears the way for him to play Sunday against the Chargers after he was sidelined for Wednesday's session. He'll likely serve as the Titans' unquestioned No. 1 receiver for the second game in a row, with talented rookie Treylon Burks having yet to make any tangible progress through the NFL's five-step concussion protocol since suffering the head injury on a touchdown reception in Tennessee's Week 13 loss to Philadelphia.

Dec 15, 2022 1:30 PM EST

Back at practice

Woods (illness) was present for practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Woods sat out Wednesday's session, so his return to the field Thursday bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Chargers. The Titans' upcoming practice report will clarify whether Woods was a limited or full participant.

Dealing with illness

Woods (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: It's not clear what Woods is dealing with, but if he misses a second day of practice Thursday then it would add yet another layer of concern for his fantasy prospects in the Titans offense. Woods' opportunity level continued to be fair enough against the Jaguars on Sunday, drawing seven or more targets for the fifth time this year, but with just 38 receptions, 406 yards and one touchdown to show for 68 targets it's clear Woods doesn't need any additional difficulties.

Respectable performance in loss

Woods recorded five receptions on seven targets for 49 yards in Sunday's 36-22 loss to the Jaguars.

Analysis: Woods topped 30 receiving yards for only the second time in his last eight games. He has been used in short areas of the field this season but was uncharacteristically targeted deep on two occasions and managed long receptions of 18 and 17 yards in Sunday's loss. Woods has seen at least five targets in each of his last five games, though that hasn't translated to much production.

Dec 11, 2022 7:59 PM EST

Another disastrous performance

Woods recorded one reception on five targets for six yards in Sunday's 35-10 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Woods finished tied for the team lead in targets, but he had a disastrous performance. His lone catch of the day came late in the second quarter in the short area of the field. Woods now has 16 or fewer receiving yards in four of his last five games.

Dec 4, 2022 7:37 PM EST

Contract restructured

Woods agreed Tuesday to restructure his contract with the Titans by converting $2.6M of his base salary into a signing bonus, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Tennessee gets more room to maneuver in-season due to the transaction. Woods' contract carries a 'dead cap' number of just over $2 million for the 2023 season, per, and now one year removed from his ACL injury, he has 32 catches for 351 yards and one touchdown on 56 targets across his first 11 games with Tennessee. The veteran wideout has mostly worked as a short-area target through the early stages of his Titans tenure, and further contract talks could have to be carried out this offseason if he is to remain with the team.

Wastes six targets

Woods recorded two receptions on six targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Bengals.

Analysis: Woods tied for the team lead with six targets, yet he averaged only 2.7 yards per target to turn in a disastrous performance. Positively, he's seen at least six targets in three consecutive games, though he's combined to post only 95 yards on 20 targets in that span. Unsurprisingly, Woods has completely lacked any big-play ability, as he has only three receptions of 20 yards or more and one score for the season.

Nov 28, 2022 6:28 PM EST

Stays busy in Week 11 win

Woods brought in six of seven targets for 69 yards in the Titans' 27-17 win over the Titans' 27-17 win over the Packers on Thursday night.

Analysis: Woods finished second to Treylon Burks in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the night, posting a season high in catches along the way. The veteran has mostly filled a short-area role during his brief Titans tenure thus far, but he could be a beneficiary of the increased defensive attention Burks should start increasingly receiving from opposing defenses down the stretch.

Nov 17, 2022 9:11 PM EST

Non-factor in win

Woods recorded two receptions on seven targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Broncos.

Analysis: Woods tied for second on the team with seven targets, but he failed to show any rapport with Ryan Tannehill. While lack of a passing game offered some explanation for Woods' slow start to the season, volume was not an issue for him Sunday. Instead, he simply couldn't do anything with his opportunity, and he has surpassed 40 yards in only one game this season.

Nov 13, 2022 8:33 PM EST

No catches in OT loss

Woods failed to haul in either of his targets in Sunday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Rookie quarterback Malik Willis completed just five passes Sunday, so it's hard to blame any receiving option for producing a poor fantasy line. The veteran wideout has seen his production dip significantly since joining the run-first Titans this past offseason. The versatile Woods owns a 22/256/1 receiving line with no rushing attempts through eight games, making him a tough sell no matter who is under center for Tennessee next Sunday against the Broncos.

Nov 7, 2022 12:06 AM EST

Quiet in Sunday's win

Woods caught both his targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Texans.

Analysis: While his numbers weren't good, Woods actually led Tennessee in receiving on the day as rookie quarterback Malik Willis completed only six passes in his first NFL start. The veteran wideout hasn't reached 40 yards in any of the last four games, but Woods could have an opportunity for a lot more production in Week 9 if Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is back under center and has to try and keep pace with the high-octane Kansas City offense.

Oct 30, 2022 7:56 PM EST

Three catches in win

Woods recorded three receptions on four targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 19-10 win over the Colts.

Analysis: The Titans jumped out to a 13-0 lead by halftime, so Ryan Tannehill attempted only 20 passes. As a result, Woods led the team with four targets and tied for the lead in receptions. He was also limited to short areas of the field and has now managed to surpass 40 receiving yards in only one of six games this season.

Oct 23, 2022 9:36 PM EST

Does little with eight targets

Woods recorded four receptions on eight targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Commanders.

Analysis: Woods led the Titans in targets but couldn't build on his strong Week 4 performance. Instead, he managed only 4.6 yards per target and tallied under 40 receiving yards for the fourth time in five games as a Titan. So long as the team's offense can run through Derrick Henry, Woods' production is likely to remain sporadic.

Oct 9, 2022 7:22 PM EST

First touchdown as Titan

Woods recorded four receptions on four targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Woods served as the Titans' top wide receiver and tied for the team lead in both targets and receptions. His upside was limited as Ryan Tannehill attempted only 21 passes, but Woods still managed to tally his first touchdown in Tennessee on a seven-yard reception midway through the first quarter. Woods now has three consecutive games with four receptions, but he may struggle to produce more as the team remains reliant on Derrick Henry to power its offense.

Oct 2, 2022 9:06 PM EST

Shows rapport against Raiders

Woods recorded four receptions on nine targets for 85 yards in Sunday's 24-22 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Woods looked the part of the top receiver in Tennessee, leading the team in targets, receptions and yards. His longest reception of the day went for 41 yards when he leaked behind the Raiders' secondary, though he also managed chunk gains of 21 and 16 yards. Woods has shown improvement in each of his three games as a Titan, and he'll look to keep that going in a Week 4 matchup against the Colts.

Sep 25, 2022 6:15 PM EST

Marginal improvement in Week 2

Woods caught four of five targets for 39 yards in Monday's 41-7 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: This is a step up for Woods after his one-catch Titans debut, but the entire Tennessee offense looked even worse than it did in the season-opening loss to the Giants. While Woods wasn't expected to fill the void created by AJ Brown's departure by himself, the veteran receiver was certainly expected to play a greater role than he has thus far for a Titans team that's scored just 27 points heading into a Week 3 visit from the Raiders.
